Who are You Listening To…and Why?
Of course, not everyone is going to get it.
When we set out to do something amazing, it’s natural for other people to criticize our goals. Sometimes these comments come out of jealousy or a lack of understanding of what we’re trying to do. But sometimes, those comments might hold a nugget of truth or even wisdom.
When the criticism gets harsh, generally it’s time to pause. If you focus on the idea there’s something to learn here, you’ll find you won’t be drawn into negativity, which might hold you back. Start by asking yourself if perhaps there’s some truth to what’s being said. If so, it might be time to learn how to accept criticism with grace. If not? Move on. The trick is not to dwell on things that aren’t worth your time. Especially when you’ve got big things to accomplish!
